Original Inception movie poster can be seen here.
I set myself a challenge to recreate some movie posters, in my own image, as it were. That is to say, using myself as the subject, and with a touch of my own artistic intent. This has been a fantastic way for me to learn more about using lights, as well as directing poses.
The lighting and pose wasn't too difficult for this image. The challenge for this was working the background. I used a composite of a number of photos I had taken from a helicopter ride over London some years ago. I don't have Vincent Laforet's budget to shoot high-altitude cityscapes. But please do check out his amazing book "Air"! (Link to the book on Amazon.co.uk.) Getting the opacity and colour right took the most time.
Please share your dreams and comments below, or use the Contact button to drop me a note and tell me what you think. Perhaps suggest another movie poster I should attempt to replicate. Do you want to be in it? You need to see better models than just me every time!
